Tuition, Fees and Other Expenses

Information about tuition and fees for the individual programs in the College of Graduate Health Sciences may be found at http://www.uthsc.edu/finance/bursar/colleges_fee_information.php with additional information regarding estimated cost of attendance at http://www.uthsc.edu/finaid/coa.php.

Some programs may provide a stipend and recommend a tuition waiver for some students. Upon recommendation of the Program Chair and approval of the Dean, applicable tuition may be waived. Such a waiver of tuition will be made available to students in return for creditable service as determined by the program. Fees cannot be waived.

Doctoral students may be granted a waiver of tuition for up to six years and the College may grant master’s-only students a waiver of tuition for up to four years. If a student fails to complete all the requirements for the degree by the allotted time, the student or the program will be responsible for paying tuition until the requirements for the degree are completed. Only full-time students, as defined by the College, are eligible to receive a waiver of tuition.

Students who choose to obtain employment at another institution or attend another educational institution while continuing to pursue their degree will not be eligible to receive a stipend, insurance, or waiver of tuition.

Students may access information regarding required books for any and all the courses in their program by going to http://utk.verbacompare.com/. In some programs, specific software may be required that is either provided or must be purchased. The student must have a computer compatible with the software.
